Cocodelo (small headed)
Lactuca sativa var. capitata
This small-headed, dark-green lettuce has a firm core. The leaves are fleshy, crisp, and extraordinarily sweet. The sweetness and lack of bitterness makes it resemble romaine lettuce. Because it rarely bolts, it is regarded as a year-round lettuce.
